I find this disturbing:

U.S. military wants to exert influence over private cyber infrastructure

The reasoning is that the military uses the internet to maintain contact with it's suppliers. Its a few steps removed from deciding that it needs to "exert influence over private cyber infrastucture" because the people who use the internet pays the military's bills.

Not to mention what will in the future will be defined as a "threat". Maybe someone doesn't like them going all around the world in wars of conquest, blogs about it and sows the seeds of distrust. Threatening activty in some minds.
To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

Again, the new world order reels its ugly face and reveals that not only the military wants to control/and or regulate the internet:


Our government is up to no good, and so is the other governments are. It is sad that I have now come to expect this kind of shady business by one of the establishments we are supposed to trust. I find it beyond disturbing...considering what this all ties into as a whole.

Guess what? The US Department of Defense created TCP/IP, which is the foundation and backbone of how the entire internet works. Without the US military you wouldn't even be on the web right now.

"... and would probably be speaking German."

Or Japanese. Not to quibble, but wasn't it a Japanese General who promised his Emperor that he could ride his horse up the White House steps?

And even then, you just know that Germany would not have let Japan hold the US for long without making a try for it..
That's my opinion anyway.. :thumbsup:

And anybody who's served in the military knows that "military" and "intelligence" should not be spoken in the same sentence. Like they said when I was in the Navy, "there's the right way, the wrong way and the Navy way."

edit for adding stuff..
